7:01 am
those metal water bottles. they're popular with children. it turns out there is a risk of kids getting their tongues trapped inside. very serious. can lead to a trip to the emergency room. so what, if anything, is being done about it? then a strange phenomenon off the coast of southern california. we're talking about massive squid. they are being spotted and caught in record numbers. we'll get a live report about that. but let us start on a wednesday morning in washington where the obama administration is getting ready to tackle a whole host of issues, beginning this morning with gun control. nbc's peter alexander is at the white house. peter, good morning. >> reporter: matt, good morning to you. barely a week into this new year and the president, as you know, is already juggling a handful of familiar challenges. they are the looming fights over guns, confirmation of his national security team, and as the nation's fast approaching, borrowing limits. with the white house's self imposed deadline for gun safety proposals at the end of this month, vice president biden's task force begins a series of meetings with victims'
7:02 am
advocates, the entertainment industry and tomorrow gun rights groups, including for the first time since the newtown massacre, the nra. they told nbc news we are sending a representative to hear what they have to say. >> the nra says it will hear what the white house has to say, if you're here to listen to them, they're here to listen to you. >> the process is designed to get input. >> reporter: joining the effort, a woman who barely survived -- gabrielle giffords. on tuesday, exactly two years after she was severely wounded by a gunman, the former arizona representative and her husband, mark kelly, launched a campaign pushing for a crackdown on guns, to counter balance the nra, writing in an op ed that as gun owners and survivors of gun violence, we have a unique message for americans. also this week, the mother of christina taylor green, the tucson shooting's youngest victim, pleading for gun control. >> when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby?
7:03 am
whose child has to die next? meanwhile, more pushback over the president's selection of the independent minded chuck hagel as secretary of defense. >> on hagel's part, i actually think there are serious policy concerns and i think these hearings are going to make a great deal of difference as to whether he is confirmed or not. >> reporter: with washington barreling toward its borrowing limit, the white house is digging in its heels for debate over the debt ceiling. >> it is congress' responsibility to ensure that the bills congress racked up are paid. >> reporter: just one of several looming showdowns as the president prepares to kick off his second term. >> what you're seeing is a more aggressive barack obama, someone who is looking more at polishing what his place in history will be, the mark he wants to leave on the country in the next four years. and that, in some ways, means a more contentious relationship with congress. >> reporter: and some serious people, matt, are floating an idea to try to avoid that debt ceiling crisis, proposing that
7:04 am
the treasury department mint a platinum trillion dollar coin. you would put that coin away in the federal reserve and then if necessary, you would spend it to help pay off the money that the u.s. owes. if that did happen, an idea some would call ridridiculous, you wd hate to be the person to put that coin in the million dollar meter. >> not a good thing, peter. thank you. new jersey governor chris christie made some headlines recently when he called out gop republicans for postponing a disaster aid vote for sandy victims. "time" magazine last night bumped someone off the cover of their magazine, they put this face on the cover of this week's issue with the headline, "the boss." with all due respect to the guy we both like, bruce springsteen, that's not what they're referring to. they're referring to the fact that this is your time to take the reins of the republican party. are you going to do it? >> i'm going to be the govng to
7:05 am
of new jersey. that's my job. the only reason you get this attention is if you're doing your job well and being the advocate for the people who elected you. he that's all this is about. it's not about me trying to take control of anything. other than trying to take care of the people who elected me. >> but you're not happy, it seems, with the course of the republican party right now. you blasted republicans last week over their inaction over hurricane sandy. you said they showed callous indifference, practicing toxic politics. strong letter to follow. those aren't words of a guy who is happy with his party. >> no, because sandy is and was above politics in every other element except what happened in congress a week ago. i was trying to point out very clearly was there are people suffering in new jersey, people suffering in new york. they need to be taken care of. remember this now, matt. we've now waited seven times longer than the victims of katrina waited for federal aid. not right. >> are you happy with the course of the republican party right now? do you think it's headed in the right direction?
7:06 am
>> matt, we've lost two national elections in a row. i would say the answer is no. >> okay. >> we've lost two national elections in a row. we need to think about doing something different. >> republicans going to have to deal with the issue of guns, as are all americans, democrats included. you called for a national discussion on guns and mental health. let me take you back to 1995. you were running for the general assembly in your state and went out and distributed campaign flyers supporting a ban on assault weapons. were you supporting the state ban on assault weapons or federal ban on assault weapons? >> state. >> you said if your opponents pledge to repeal that ban that it was dangerous, crazy and radical. would you take the next step now in the wake of all these shootings and say it's dangerous, crazy and radical for the federal government not to step up and create a ban on assault weapons? >> states need to make some of these decisions like we made in new jersey. we have the second toughest gun laws in america, only behind the state of new york. i think if that's all you're
7:07 am
talking about, you're shortchanging this conversation. this young man in connecticut was obviously seriously mentally ill. why do we have such a stigma about mental illness treatment? >> if the president proposes a ban on assault weapons, do you support him? >> if that's all he proposes? >> if it's part of his plan. >> all you're focusing on right now is gun control. what about the violence in our video games? you and i both have children. we don't allow those games into our house. we made that decision because we think it desensitizes our children to the real effect of violence. the fact is, we need to have a conversation about all these things. we had a woman in camden who decapitated her child and killed herself, high on crack. if we don't deal with the substance abuse issues and mental abuse issues that lead to violence, we're shortchanging this conversation. >> if they deal with those issues as well, would you support a federal ban on assault weapons? >> depends on what they do, matt.
7:08 am
>> why not say yes or no? >> it's not that easy. i know in a short interview like this, you would like me to give you pithy answers. but the fact is that these are complicated issues. the fact is i'm willing to have that conversation. that's a lot more than other people are willing to say. i'm willing to have the conversation but you have to deal with these other issues. otherwise you're just being political. >> in your state of the state address yesterday, you cast new jersey as to what you term the dysfunctional, dispirited and distrustful government in washington. i follow new jersey pretty closely, we're right across the border from you guys yet i watch you guys in the legislature there. they're dealing with the same gridlock on issues like taxes that we're seeing in washington. why is new jersey a better example? >> divided government in the past three years, we've passed the cap on property taxed. we've done a new drug rehabilitation program where for first-time offenders you don't get send sent to jail. you get sent to rehabilitation. i've vetoed three income tax increases when i've had to. we've had on confrontations when
7:09 am
we've had to. >> there's plenty of dysfunction in new jersey in politics as well. >> lot less than there used to be, matt. lot less than there used to be. we're finding areas to compromise and work together. we've done more together than we've had fights in the past three years. >> let's talk about compromise. we are barreling towards fiscal cliff part two, the sequel to what we just have seen. some people say the debate coming up could be worse over the debt ceiling and spending. do you want to see the republican party stand firm and refuse to raise the debt ceiling until there are severe, dramatic and severe spending cuts, keeping in mind the last time we debated this, the credit rating of the united states is lower. are you willing to risk that again? >> i think we need to stand firm on getting some real significant spending reductions. we've now done what the president wanted to do. he wanted to raise taxes on the highest earning americans and republicans have now acquiesced to that. now it's time for the president to stand up and say here is what i need to do.
7:10 am
if he's going to be a credible compromiser, he needs to stand up. >> do republicans refuse to raise the debt limit if those spending cuts are not deep enough? >> we've got a bunch of different options at our disposal. continuing resolution coming up in march. you have a number of other things that you can do that includes the debt ceiling. my point is that you have to get to the table and start working now. if we wait before the week or so before to start talking to each other we won't get it done. >> you forged a nice relationship with the president in the wake of hurricane sandy. you guys hit it off. there was that bromance that everyone talk about. do you still have his ear? might you be of some use as he approaches republicans during this debate? >> i don't offer my advice to the president in that way. what i've dealt with the president on is hurricane sandy and that's what the nature of our relationship is. he is not calling me matt at 11:00 at night and saying, hey, chris, what are you thinking about this? that's not how the relationship works.
7:11 am
the fact is, i'll continue to speak out publicly about the things that i think are important, and anybody in washington, d.c. who wants to come to new jersey and see om of the stuff we're doing, how i'm working with the democratic legislature to try to bring compromise and consensus. fact that 61% of new jerseyans think their state is moving in the right direction is testimony to the fact that they think their government is working. that's what we're doing. anybody that wants advice in washington on that, myself and steve sweeney and the democrats from the legislature, we're happy to run a seminar for them. >> you end with a pithy answer. i like it. >> yeah. >> governor christie, always good to see you. >> thank you, matt. >> thank you. come 2014, there may be no u.s. troops on the ground in afghanistan. this, as the obama administration plans its final exit strategy from the decade-long conflict. the pentagon does not support the option, though, to pull out all american troops from afghanistan, saying some soldiers need to stay and tamp

7:13 am
gallons, was spilling from the left tank on to the tarmac. monday, a different 787 parked at the gate following a flight emptied of passengers and crew began smoking. a fire down below that ntsb and boeing investigators have traced to the auxiliary power battery unit. >> it was a moderate fire condition in the modern avionics department that included the batteries and some of the electronic equipment. >> reporter: according to reports, one firefighter was injured battling monday's fire. boeing said of the fire, quote, nothing that we've seen in this case indicates a relationship to any previous 787 power system events, which involved power panel faults elsewhere in the aft electrical equipment bay. clearly, this is not the pr they dreamed about. >> i'll fly on a 787 any time. i have absolute confidence in the airplane. there are going to be teething problems with a new airplane. it's quite common. >> reporter: in light of all of this, united airlines says it will examine its fleet of 787s,

looking for any signs of trouble. natalie? >> ron mott in boston. thanks so much, ron. aig is considering whether or not to join a lawsuit against the government over the $182 billion bailout that saved the company back in 2008. aig's decision on whether or not to sue the government will come by the end of the month. as many as 50 people were hurt this morning, at least one critically when a commuter ferry in new york city made what is described as a hard docking in lower manhattan. fire and rescue officials took many of the injured away on stretchers. one passenger said there was a jolt and people went flying. the crowded high-sped ferry was coming from new jersey. if you're competing in a high school swim meet you don't want to see four-time olympic medalist missy franklin in the lane right next to you. believe it or not, at her first high school swim meet since her summer games in london, missy franklin says she was actually nervous. 6 the 17-year-old heads to college

if you like calamari there may be no better place to go than southern california. fishermen there are catching huge numbers of jumbo squid. we sent nbc's tom costello out on a nighttime fishing expedition. good morning, tom. did you catch the big one? >> reporter: yes, i did. you might call this the great california squid rush or calamari rush because fishermen have never seen these jumbo squid out on this ocean in years. now it seems the whole ocean is full of them. a beautiful picturesque sunset over the pacific and the hunt is on for the ink-spitting humble squid or what we know in the restaurant as calamari. >> oh, yeah. hoping to catch some big ones. >> reporter: after word spread last week that hundreds are being caught at a time, fishermen up and down the california coast have been trying to get in on the catch. >> welcome to squid fishing. >> one of my co-workers is a fish guru and watches this like a religion and told me they're
7:18 am
biting like crazy. >> reporter: it didn't take long. within minutes, the squid were hitting the deck, lots of them. katie mason brought along her kids, including 5-year-old catalina. >> well, i warned them, it's wet, it's dirty, it's crazy. so i wanted them to kind of have that experience. >> they're really big. >> it's like pulling up a volkswagen tire. >> reporter: putting up a fight and squirting water and ink at everyone on board. >> once they come up and they get in the light, you can catch as many as you want really quickly. >> reporter: the last time so much jumbo squid showed up here was back in 2009 and the discovery channel just shot this first-ever video of an elusive 600-pound giant squid. why are so many suddenly showing up off the california coast? we asked marine biologist chris plant. >> it is remarkable we're seeing them in the density worry seeing them in. we can only guess that they're chasing food.
7:19 am
they could be eating anything from small krill all the way up to bigger fishes. >> reporter: catching them isn't difficult. i don't think he's happy. even i caught one and i never catch anything. whoo! how did i do? >> you did great. good job. >> reporter: this is what it's all about. this is how -- they tell me i got to hold a squid. and the key is to souffle it very quickly because the meat will go bad in just a few hours. in all, our boat called in 300. we won't show you the deck hands rushing to cut and clean the squid right away. but on this night off the san diego coast -- >> feels like hitting a home run in little league. >> reporter: everyone went home with some calamari for the freezer. >> reporter: fishermen love this because the squid put up such a fight. that's a fisherman's delight. they could get up to five, six feet long. why are they here now and how long will they stick around is really anyone's guess. in the meantime you can imagine
7:20 am
there are going to be a lot of fishermen headed to the nearby beach. >> tom costello, congratulations. hope you washed your hands. a lot. >> 2,000 leagues under the sea. >> that was a squid. nemo. you need a big boat with a big fryer behind it. >> fried and marinara sauce. >> that's all we need. coming up, popular metal water bottles being blamed for serious injuries. the concern that could land your child in the emergency room. she's a bufy queen that caught the eye of an espn announcer during monday's championship game. now the network is apologizing. we will get reaction from katherine webb, miss alabama u.s.a. in an exclusive, live interview. first this is "today" on nbc. oh!

9:18 am
great to have you back. >> nice to be here. >> you say this is a good time. a lot of people make new year's resolutions. we should be practicing this year round and really encouraging us to take a good look at our relationships? >> absolutely. you always have to kind of revisit the natural course of every relationship with our busy lives kind of veer off course and it's important to reenergize things, especially if you want a long-term monogamous relationship. >> what do you think the problems couples are having? >> we get lazy, we get busy. that can go on the back burner. there are simple things you can do, you know, right now to jump start things, to recommit, that don't take a lot of work but they do take commitment. >> five resolutions starting with set a weekly date night. >> you've heard this before but i'm not talking about ray weekly date night where you go to the movies or out with five other couples. this is a date night where you're talking about things other than diapers or the bills. you have to find things to discuss, which a lot of couples
9:19 am
think what would we do sitting across the table with nothing to talk about. talk about where you see yourself in ten years or your dream vacation you'd still like to take or five things your partner does that makes you feel loved. a lot of people unfortunately are letting those date nights go by the wayside. they say they'll do it and they don't. in fact if you take a vacation alone together, a few days once or twice a year alone, that does more for your intimacy and connection than even a weekly date night. >> when you go on that vacation or you should do this more often as well, you say share your fantasies with your partner. what are you talking about? >> well, we get scared about that so you have to create rules of the road. we're not going to judge one another. share the ones you'd like to act out together. agree to write them down and put them in a box and once a month pull one out and try it out and it's a way to keep things energized and interesting. >> and start kissing again really quickly. >> kissing, this is a big one for women especially. because kissing goes by the wayside in the long-term
9:20 am
relationship. if you do what i call nondemand kissing where you can just kiss for a while with no expectation of it going anywhere else, you will see a spike in -- especially in the woman's libido. if you give each other a ten-second kiss twice a day rather than that quick peck walking in and out of the door, that does a tremendous amount for your connection and sort of keeps those fires -- women have to be especially at a slow burn. they can't go from zero to 60. >> dr. laura berman, great advice as always. more resolutions for couples on our website as well. thank you. coming up, how "fifty shades of grey" are influencing actually parenting trends for the new year. but first these messages. nds fo new ar rst these messages. hmm, we need new game. ♪ that'll save the day. ♪ so will bounty select-a-si. it's the smaller powerful sheet. the only one with trap + lock technology.
